So. Fucking. Good.

I love it when this happens.

I love it when a book I am highly anticipating meets my expectations.

It's a moment that's almost celestial.


Such a joy.
...And a bit of a relief, no?

In an effort to avoid spoilers, I will keep this borderline gush-fest brief.

Pam Godwin is an author goddess.
A sexy sexy times scribe goddess.

NO ONE writes dark romance like Pam Godwin. Seriously- no one. She is the best of the best when it comes to this genre in my opinion. Her Deliver series has been epic for me, so of course I was ecstatic to get to this book. Devastate is Tate’s book, but there is so much more to it than just being Tate’s book. We get so much of my boy Van, and another one of my favorite characters from Pam (to be honest, he kind of stole the show for me… and totally needs his own book ASAP!).

It's been a long LONG while since I read a dark romance so dark that I actually needed a mental health break after reading it. This book completely destroyed me. In the best way possible. But I still doubt I'll ever be the same. I don't remember the last time I read a story that had me riveted to the pages, with one eye closed, anxiety in the pit of my stomach, and an undeniable feeling of dread the entire time. It was one o

"I'm here for you and you alone."

Devastate is the fourth book in the Deliver Series. In order to grasp the full emotions of the characters and their plight, I highly recommend reading this series in order. As the twisted fates of a few broken people intercept and intertwine, the balance of right and wrong sway violently back and forth. This series is certainly not for the faint of heart but, if you are willing to take a ride through the dark and twisted side than this one is for you!

Genre: Dark Romantic Suspense
Type: Book 4 of Deliver series
POV: Third Person

Tate Vades had a quest to complete - to find his best friend's missing sister. His reason behind it might be skewed, but his dedication never wavered.

For years Lucia Dias was thought to be dead. But when she was finally found, she's no longer the same person as she was before.

Lucia’s smile was his responsibility, his goal, his everything. Her life, her health, all of her was his to protect.

"Without the bad stuff-the trauma, the fall, and the crash-joy wouldn't exist."

Tate Vades; had fallen in love hard and needed a distraction.  What more than to go on the hunt for his best friend's missing sister to keep his mind occupied.  He knew staying as far away from an impossible love was the best for him.

Another awesome book by Pam Godwin!! I do feel Van made this story!! I enjoyed every scene with him in it!!! I finished this book at 3:30 am... which means I’m tired! Lol!!! So review to come!
4.5 Stars!

For Tate Vades, life hasn’t always been easy but he’s adapted to his situation. Pining after his good friend for some time, he believes he can capture her heart if only he can find her missing sister. When Tate decides to act on his plan, he is tested physically and emotionally in ways he never could have foreseen.

Tate has decided to help locate his best friend, Camila's, sister. Most everyone is convinced she is dead since she was stolen and sold into sex slavery over a decade ago. Even Camila no longer thinks her sister, Lucia, is alive. Tate makes it his mission to find out the truth about what happened to Lucia and *if* she's alive to reunite her with Camila. The price he must pay to find the truth broke my heart.

I like this author’s brand of “dark” but not “romance”.

The Dark: This series, which should be read in order, is made up of characters who were victims who became predictors and are now vigilantes working along side the people they’ve hurt/violated to rid the world of the people who continue to prey on the innocent.

I've read the entire Deliver series almost back to back and now I think I'm going to suffer from withdrawal because how am I supposed to let this all go?
Pam Godwin continues to push over and over again! If you think Disclaim was dark, wait for Devastate! This is getting worse with each and every single book she writes! You think you've reach the darkest? Well not at all, Devastate is worse!

There’s no doubt that Pam is the Queen of dark reads! I just love her books they’re so freaking hot and sexy but at the same time they’re non-gratuitous. This series is just mind blowingly amazing! Love it. This is Tate’s story, one I was definitely looking forward to, especially after the last book. I love Tate, he’s just so freaking precious. I also loved Lucia.

Holy crap, is Devastate the darkest and grittiest book of the Deliver series or am I just getting soft!? You take a model-hot guy like Tate, on a mission to find the missing sister of his longtime love interest Camila, throw in the pit of hell that Caracas, Venezuela is, and you’ve got yourself a suspenseful, graphic, but still sexy as shizzle story!

Pam Godwin releases these books in such a span of time my old lady brain is quite hazy as to the previous books’ plots. That bein

This book was so good. I 've been looking forward to this book since I read the last book. This series is really good. It is a dark read and does push my boundaries in parts. But the story is just so well written. Once I start the books I find it hard to put them down. And this book was no different.

Devastate did just that, it devastated me in the best and worst ways possible. It was a gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, nail biting, page turning read that I quite enjoyed it even when it made me so ragey that I wanted to do some irreparable damage to a certain character. Devastate wasn't all dark, there were light hearted moments between Van and Tate that had me laughing out. Van doesn't know the meaning of the word boundaries.

Holy cow, I swear Pam can deliver angst, pain and love in such a way you can't wait to turn the page!

This series begins with one of the first dark books I read and I remember being blown away when I finished Deliver. With Devastate I knew Pam would deliver a story that hurt, but was so addictive I would immediately be hooked and she did.

This is Tate's story and it starts with him basically going on a suicide mission to find his best friend's sister, Lucia. Things take a detour when he finally s

Devastate undoubtedly my favorite book, to date, of the Deliver series it’s beautifully twisted right from the start. Pam Godwin wrote one hell of a dark romance, that will challenge your mind and heart to see if you can take it all. It's heartrending how much a person can endure to protect the people they love. And in this book, I found the most sinister character I've read so far and I'm not talking about Van.

I greatly enjoyed Tate and Lucia's story. A real page-turner! I highly recommend thi

I'm totally in awe of Pam Godwin's inability to invent a completely new plot and atmosphere with each new book of the Deliver series.
In Devastate, the 4th installment, we follow the story of Tate (a true alpha that made me swoon: patient, caring, protecting and dominant ) and Lucia, Camilla's sister, a badass and resilient heroine I instantly connected with.

Once again, the psychological journey, and distress of 6the characters was amazingly handled. It truly was devastating. And beautiful.

This is the fourth book in the Deliver series. Read the previous books in order as this truly is a great series.

Tate vows to find Lucia who is Camilas sister. He certainly doesn’t expect what he finds. He will do whatever he can to protect her and make her his.

This truly is an amazing series. I haven’t got enough words in my vocabulary to give these books the reviews they deserve.
If you enjoy dark reads then I highly recommend the Deliver series to you.

Devastate, Book 4 in The Deliver Series, this series needs to be read in order. One of my top favorite dark series, I highly recommend!

What took me so long to read this? I was taking a break from dark romance for a bit, I'm so glad to be back to my roots.

Pam Godwn has certainly grown in her writing talent from the days of Deliver (Deliver #1). Devastate is by far her best work to date!!!
